Supporting Our Community
Posted on December 4, 2013 by Milkwood Admin
Due to reports and innovative new approaches aimed at improving the well-being of people living with dementia, Milkwood Care host Sport and Recreation events in all of our homes. Through local partnerships, we offer residents in our care the chance to look back, discuss and share their favourite moments of sport through the decades. Our residents have the opportunity to participate in stimulating, enjoyable activities which help participants to recall their favourite moments of sport and to begin to tell their own personal stories.
Each of our care home teams have recenty been researching sports clubs in their local area in view of offering help in the form of match sponsorship, providing kit and offering the use of space for team meetings. We have found these partnerships to be of great benefit to our residents, with some regularly going along to spectate at sporting events.
Our homes have chosen to support the following sports clubs:-
Ganarew House Care Home – Ross Football Club Juniors
The Mountains Care Home – Brecon Corries Football Club
Milkwood House Care Home – Petersfield Rugby Football Club
Chatterwood Care Home – Newman Collard Tennis Club, Liss
Applewood House Care Home – Reading Football Club
